Deciding whether or not to have surgery for your bladder, bowel and/or prolapse problems is an individual decision. The physicians of the Greenville Health System Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology Female Pelvic team can assist you in making a plan that works best for you. A lot depends on your individual problems, and more depends on your preferences. You should seek treatment when your symptoms begin to negatively impact your daily life – don’t wait until your symptoms are 'really bad'. Uncontrollable urine leakage, while common, is not a normal result of childbirth and aging. You do not have to 'learn to live with it'. Seeking medical help does not mean that you have to have surgery right away. For some women, more conservative treatment such as physical therapy is just as effective, with surgery becoming an option only if their urine loss is not well controlled.
